hi velentina, I will admit I become jealous if my friend found a new friend(s) but I must understand that I am not the only person in this world that can interact with them so I just tried my best to be around and my presence will be feel. In your case you need to talk to your friend and ask her/him what is wrong if you are still friends or what. Maybe she has reasons after all happy mylotting

Hi velentina. I do not forget my old friends. I try to make new friends but i never fail to keep in touch with the old ones. We've shared so much and i can't bear the thought of letting go an old friend for a new one. in your situation you need to communicate with her. Tell her what you feel and what she thinks about it. Communication is the only solution to your problem. Or think it over, aren't you expecting too much from her? You can go out and find new friends. There is nothing wrong with that so long as you know how to keep the old and tested ones :)

Maybe she doesn't purposely trying to avoid you. Maybe it's simply because she has moved on and caught up in something else. I think the best advice I can give you is to talk with her and tell her how you feel if her friendship means so much with your life. If it's not working out then it's your call to move on.. It hurts but it heals too.

I have loved my old friends. I have a new set of friends that i hang around now but that doesnt mean that i will ignore the old ones. I cant really say that she is ignoring you but lets just say that people change. Do not get offended when they leave as i believe that friends come in a season. Friends come and go. Just the same, there would be friends that you will keep till the end.

Hi, I can understand the hurt you feel. I have experienced the same years ago and the friend who was truly valuable to me never came back because she found new friends. That phase was extremely painful for me and I never tried to inquire again. But I think that was my mistake. I should have tried to hold her attention. I should have asked her why she is behaving like that and would not give me attention. Some people can lose interest when they find something or someone new. This is a habit with them. The fact that she is avoiding you might be due to other causes also. Someone might have told her that you have made a remark about her. Often some people spoil friendships this way because they are jealous of two people being very good friends. So I would suggest that you clear it out with her. I hope things will be alright for you soon.

Oh, that is too bad. Is there something special that you do hurt her? Is she angry with you? I have the same experience as you , I have a good friend, but I don't know when she doesn't like me and keep far away from me. Until she got married, she doesn't tell me. Until now, I don't know the reason.

no, i wouldn't do that because we are friends. and i treasure all my friends. if your friend is like that maybe she/he is not a true friend. because a true friend never leaves a friend behind.your friend should introduce his/her new friends so that both of you can be friends. but that was just my opinion, okey?hope you won't get it against me regarding my opinion. happy mylotting.

I don't think I could ever forget a real friend even if I get new ones...a real friend of mine is a friend for life...even if we don't/can't see each other on regular we will still keep in contact and remain friends....

No definitely not, Friend is always be a friend, even I got a new friend I will never forget my old friends or my childhood friends. Maybe sometimes we will feel that we already forget by our old friends. But in the end we still love and missed each other.

Old friends are like indigenous arromatic rice from whom we can have always a fresh scent of friendship where as the new ones never conveys any scent.lmao
